WEIGH IN: Stillhouse Hollow Marina

Recently it seems that the “good old days” of excellent bass fishing on Stillhouse Hollow have become a thing of the past.  Come to think of it, it seems that the bass fishing has been extremely tough on all the lakes we have visited lately.  I don’t think the fish have gotten any smarter, nor do I believe we as anglers have digressed.  I guess the summer’s heat is just too much for fish and anglers alike.  Despite knowing this, eight determined MMBC teams showed up to fish the seventh Mr. and Mrs. Bass Club tournament of the year on July 10th.  The tournament began at 4am in the cool of the night and weigh in was held at the marina at noon.  The tournament started out with some eerie early morning fog blanketing the lake.  The winds were light and the water temperature started out around 82 degrees and climbed to 86 degrees by weigh in time.

On a side note, one thing that made me excited as I fished (not caught) was the amount of hydrilla I saw floating in the lake.  Something I hadn’t seen in a while on Stillhouse.  I also ran across several nice bunches of it growing in the 16-20 foot range at various spots around the lake. Then I ran across it on a shallow flat I was fishing in about 3 to 4 foot of water.  Our only keeper bass of the day came from the shallow hydrilla.  I am optimistic that if the hydrilla continues to grow we can expect great things from Stillhouse again.

On this day the MMBC anglers were not blessed with great fishing and after talking to several folks at the ramp, it seems nobody is catching good numbers of bass on Stillhouse this year.  I even heard rumors of fishing guides refusing to take clients to this lake because it been so tough to catch fish.  With that being said, you can guess that the results I am about to write about are less than spectacular.  However one team prevailed through the adversity and won their second tournament in a row during a time when putting a keeper in the livewell is harder than staying cool on a 100 degree day.

Pat and Jerry Gold caught the most keepers on this day.  Unfortunately for everyone else, it was only three bass weighing 6.79 pounds.  This was still plenty to gain them first place accolades.   I heard at the ramp that Pat caught all the fish that day. Way to go Pat!  She also took woman’s big bass honors with a nice 4.17 pounder.   It looks to me like the Gold’s new Bullet boat is treating them right!  Congrats yall!  In second place was Jessie Sanchez and his guest Dan.  They brought two fish to the scales weighing 4.27 pounds and Jessie took men’s big bass honors with a nice 3.03 pounder.  Rounding out the top three by just a few ounces was Lesli and Robert Brown, with two fish weighing 4.17 pounds.

We now set our sights on Austin’s own Lake Travis for our tournament scheduled on August 21st.  Until then, tight lines and be safe.

TIME: 6:00am – 2:00pm
WEIGH IN: Temple Lake Park

Tournament Images

As most would agree, Lake Belton can be a hit or miss lake.  Most of the MMBC teams that arrived at Temple Lake Park Saturday morning completely missed the target as they aimed to bring a limit of bass to the scales.  As the tournament began, the day looked to be promising with a light wind and slight cloud cover.  Conditions seemed optimal for some good central Texas bass fishing.  However, as the day progressed and temperatures soared into the mid 90’s, most competitors realized that the fishing conditions would be very tough. Of the eight teams that participated zero of them managed to bring a limit of bass to the scales.  Speaking of zeros, half the field brought absolutely no fish to the weigh in at all.  A tough day indeed.

The team of Pat and Jerry Gold managed to round up four finicky Lake Belton bass and take the win fishing out of their flashy new Bullet boat.  Jerry boated a hefty 5.51 pound Belton bucket mouth which took men’s big bass and anchored their sack of 9.59 pounds.  Great job guys on a very tough day of fishing.  Continuing their hot streak and finishing in second place was the team of Rosemarie and Pete Trevino.  They managed to bring three bass to the scales weighing 5.90 pounds.  Rosemarie took women’s big bass honors with a 2.15 pound largemouth.  In third place with two bass weighing 3.02 pounds was the team of Leslie Killough and Brent Parish.  The last team to bring fish to the scales and finishing in fourth place was Brenda and Cliff Davis with one bass weighing 1.22 pounds.  The rest of the competitors only managed to bring in empty livewells to the melting asphalt of the Temple Lake Park parking lot.  It was a truly tough day of fishing and surviving the sweltering heat was an accomplishment in it’s self.

Club members now set their sights on Lake Stillhouse hollow where the July tournament will be held in the cool of the night.

Just five days after returning from Lake Amistad seven teams of the Mr. and Mrs. Bass club of Austin were at Lake Buchanan competing in the May club tournament.  The lakes had some things in common, beautiful water and surroundings.  What Buchanan did not have in common with Amistad was 14” fish.  Catching a fish of any size was quite difficult but finding one over 13 ¾” was amazing!

As is usual one team managed to throw a bait the fish seemed to want.  Cliff and Brenda Davis had a five fish limit weighing in 8.81 pounds.  Brenda had a 3.01 which was women’s big bass of the tournament.

Coming in second was Rosemarie and Pete with 3.39 pounds and Pete had men’s big bass with a 2.24 pounder.  Jesse Sanchez had to fish solo because Sugein was ill and stayed home.  Jesse weighed in 2.92 pounds which took third place.  The Brown’s, Connell’s, Tyree’s and Gold’s rounded out the field.  The only time anyone saw the Gold’s they were a “swish” mark on the lake in their new Bullet being pushed by a 300 horsepower motor.  She’s a beautiful boat and very fast too!  Congratulations Jerry and Pat on your new baby.

It wasn’t a good day for catching bass but it was a nice day on the lake and the wildflowers made the trip more than worthwhile.  Bluebonnets, Indian Paintbrushes, Brown eyed Susan’s and Firewheels carpeted the roadsides and fields.  If the bass in the lake could have seen the scenery surrounding them they would have been jumping into our boats for a glimpse of the beauty.

After the tournament we all went to Storm’s restaurant in Burnet for food and talk.  The social time spent after the tournament is almost as much fun as the fishing.
